Silk Embroidered Souvenir - British Legation Guard Peking, 1913-1914.
Please contact us in advance if you would like to view this book at our Curzon Street shop.
Attractive piece, 16" x 14", headed with the banner "Allied Forces in China" above the Royal Artillery badge and motto. An aperture has been left for the inclusion of a portrait photograph, beneath which an eagle is shown attacking a dragon, the whole surrounded by the flags of the Allied Nations intertwined with floral sprays, beneath the title as above. Coloured silks and metal wire on a black background. Very good, apparently never framed.
An unusual subject for one of these souvenir pieces.
